Over the past, I've had periodic precognitive episodes, nothing dramatic, I could only see/experience several seconds into future during these episodes while fully awake and conscious. It wasn't until one episode that actually saved me from a potentially fatal road accident that I realized they were real!

The last one I had was last Sunday, June 9, 2013. The last one is the one that prompted me to investigate past episodes to realize they are occurring at an almost 2 year interval and almost the same month!

The first episode occurred on August 2009, The second, on August 2011, the last one June 9, 2013...

...The near periodicity of the precognitive episodes led me to conclude that I may not be "jumping" or seeing through time zones at will (I don't think I'm in control) but rather, I may be witnessing a phenomenon that may be occurring globally, even throughout the whole Universe!

What led me to conclude we maybe living in a simulated world in some sort of computer, is that I have a bit of knowledge with gaming servers for mmorpg games. Those games where you interact with many other players around the world in a virtual environment in a computer.

These game servers require a periodic/scheduled maintenance. It could be every 15 days and the process always include a server-wide reboot or restart or shutdown and turned on again. The purpose is improve performance, reliability, and correct possible errors in the program. Before the machine momentarily turns off during the reboot, it automatically saves active data several seconds or up to couple minutes before the machine momentarily turns off It is necessary so that all active data is saved and none lost or corrupted....

This means if players kept playing up to the point the server turns off, becomes offline, they get disconnected from the game. And if they return to the game after it reboots successfully and becomes online again, they will realize everything they did in the last several seconds or minutes before the server turned offline will be undone!

What the players do have is only a memory of the things they have done in the game that has been erased. However, from the point of view of the server or computer-controlled characters in the game, those several seconds or minutes that has been erased hasn't happened yet!


What I've been seeing as a player of mmorpg games during server maintenance mirrors that of what I've been witnessing in those precognitive episodes!


Why I think it makes sense that we live in a simulated environment is that having time jump backwards several seconds every two years with most people unaware of it serves no purpose at all!

The only sense it makes is that we may living inside a super quantum computer that needs to be reboot every two years.

As a Christian, it seems to bring a whole new meaning what Jesus said on John 6:63.

You've been playing too many video games.


Why does seeing a type of "reboot" have to mean virtual reality? It's your gaming that's causing you to perceive it this way.

It's real here.

Where's the proof?

I see NO potential evidence at all. I mean Not even a quite possible maybe.

It might make a great movie line but I believe that is about it.

Maybe you have played to many online video games. Ya know those things are traumatizing? .. .. . Right .. ?

Your not the only one who believes that we may be inside a virtual computer generated reality.

Check out Tom Campbell, the physicist that created the theory of everything and written a book
to explain it called My Big TOE.

I find his theory's very useful for left brained persons to understand spirituality without the need for religion.

Periodic reboots could also explain the feeling of deja vu that virtually everyone seems to get at various times. This of course would only happen if a person was doing just about the same thing they were doing before the reboot occurred. This is likely to occur in my opinion, and a person could easily find themselves, via cause and effect, doing pretty much the same thing that they were doing beforehand, which didn't get saved. I get what you are saying, and sure it could be possible, but I have no idea.

I do seem to think that there must be some type of underlying structure to the universe and to all things within it, and that all things either are connected at all times, or can be connected for a certain reason or for various reasons at random intervals. Or they would seem random to us anyway. I think this type of framework would allow for the explanations of things that many people know to be real, but that cannot yet be scientifically documented, such as the paranormal, psychic experiences, etc. Spooky action at a distance is an understatement, and although Einstein was referring to individual particles when he coined the term, it seems that it could have a much larger basis in both the quantum and classical worlds.

I too am a Christian, but I hold the belief that God does not violate any of the natural laws He created. Because He wouldn't need to. There are likely either safeguards, or something built in to our fundamental world that allows for seemingly miraculous events to occur. To us they are going to seem like a manifestation of the impossible, when in fact they are probably things that are easily explained, but we just don't understand them yet. But also, God, the controller, the "user" of this universal computer system could also be the one creating the input. Everything that occurs would be the result of cause and effect, and even what seems random probably is just a complicated algorithm or some sort, and so a small input in one area could have drastic affects somewhere else. But then, God should know what is going to happen.

It is not that God needs to create a computer simulation. It is just that He has certain tools that He is going to decide to use, and it seems that we are slowly figuring out some of those things, including part of the structure of the world in which we live. So saying that God does not have control would be false.

Let's presume that this hypothesis holds water and investigate it a little for fun.

"IF" there is indeed a type of 'reboot' process, well saying it happens every two years only applies to us because our sun and Earth and their rotational periods are also fabrications.

There is no way to determine what "Time duration/elapsing period" the computer controllers live within as compared to what we appear to live within.

Also an important thing to note is that if this is a computer system, we are artificial life forms. Our coding was designed to allow us to propose "I think therefore I am", which really complicates the entire confusing process of speculating about if we are inside some sort of advanced computer, for lack of better terminology.

The universe isn't in a computer, this isn't the matrix, you aren't neo, this is a lie created to cause you to give up on life. Why help the poor? Their just computer programs. I know this is a popular theory but it's bogus city. What you experienced is more common than you know. Deja Vu, Precog-Dreams, even fully awake Precognition, I've experienced what you describe a dozen + times, there are alternate explanations such as...

Perhaps your spirit is a 5th, 6th or 7th dimensional body living inside a 3rd dimensional body. If this is the case perhaps when you are 'out of sync' for a few seconds you can see the future, for a 5th, 6th, 7th dimensional body won't be restricted to past, present, future, they can see everything that ever happened in the 4th dimension 'time', this is an explanation that fully avoids the trendy 'the universe is a computer program' theory. This theory in my opinion is much more logical, depends on your view of the universe.

Maybe they have it compartmentalized within the quantum computer system?

Like maybe they can shut down and reboot one section, while leaving the other running.
This way they can roll through the sections a few at a time while leaving the whole overall thing running?

I don't know I am just wondering.

Sure maybe anything?
Maybe it's all an illusion or delusion? Maybe.

Although I enjoy looking over all of the postulations and speculations around, I generally take it all with a grain of salt and make sure to remind myself that a mystery is a mystery because we don't know anything and until we find out some decent information it's foolish to put all of our eggs in one basket.

I don't have a clue which of the competing hypothesis are much better than others in this specific matter because none of them have enough evidence to make it to the theory stage yet.

I am attracted to the matrix hypothesis however because of the way information and literally the physics of the universe appear to operate. 0s and 1s. + and -

The simulation theory is a cool one. The question i have is, if God is the controller of the universe/multiverse and created everything who made Him? I just feel like the line might stop somewhere.

Things like this happen all the time with people. The problem is it can so easily be blamed on brain hickups. The brian isn't a perfect thing. It's more likely than the simulation idea.

In fact, a few years ago something like this happened to me. I can't recall exactly what it was. I either gained a day or lost a day or something like that. The event was preceded by me asking what would happen if it happened. So basically I primed myself. Of course, I didn't think it would actually happen. It did happen, but what's strange is I don't recall very much about it.

Is my faulty brain.

Other than that, like most people, i sometimes experience synchronicity. For example, I might be reading about something particular and then the next day see it somewhere spontaneously.

Better not to be superstitious. I think it requires more courage to rationalize these sorts of things than it does to embellish them. People want to make life exciting so they go with it. I think a good many religions and legends and stories shared between friends are the result of this. If people weren't so quick to attach special meaning to random coincidences, there'd not be as many of those. Then again, why let facts ruin a good story? A good story can make life a lot more interesting.

It's like when something bad happens people will blame it on the devil. Or like in primitive cultures how bad things might be blamed on a deformed baby or a strange visitor. Somehow, I think all of this is connected to how casinos are so popular in the world. People don't understand chance. They don't understand probability. This is why they become so addicted to slot machines.

Has the idea that our reality could be a simulation been disproven ?

Many server systems have that capability to accommodate hardware failures. But there are still many important reasons to perform a server-wide reboot on a scheduled basis.

@Shadella



Where's the proof? I see NO potential evidence at all. I mean Not even a quite possible maybe.


It's quite difficult to gather tangible evidence. First it doesn't happen all the time, second, I wasn't able to predict it's about to manifest until now, I maybe able to wait for it in the year 2015...

...Until then, the only way you might get an evidence is to have scientists study me in a lab.

@Johnny

In my first precognitive episode I would have agreed with you. But my second made me realize it's real and I'm not just imagining things.

In my second precognitive episode, it helped me to avoid a road hazard. A freshly collapsed portion of a mountain road that is hidden by a blind corner. I was able to momentarily see the hidden road hazard that is not possible otherwise with normal perception.

Thanks! Indeed I'm a left-brained person. I'm not yet completely sold out to virtual reality theory. It's just I find no other logical explanation for our world jumping back in time every two years for several seconds. I also can't dismiss there maybe explanations that are beyond our understanding that doesn't include computer simulation like reality.

You cannot prove something doesn't exist, you can only prove it exists.

And the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.

So no one knows basically.
It is probably unknowable for us humans as are many other cosmological issues.

Well I can explain it away and try to convince you it's not possible if that's the way you want me to argue.

I have never personally seen time change like you had mentioned before, so maybe it's actually a biochemical reaction within your brain and you are misunderstanding the nature of what is going on?

And how do you know if it did happen, that it doesn't happen more often but you fail to notice it? Like during sleep?

Arguing from this perspective is fine and dandy but it's just not very interesting, that's why I didn't bother with it earlier and instead entertained the fun suggestions. It generally is a lot more fun to speculate about the cosmos and how the hell it works.

If we need supercomputers just to simulate all the quantum mechanical behavior of all components of an atom down to quarks or even smaller units, then anyone who could simulate whole worlds down to quantum levels would have absolutely no problems of creating artificial intelligence sophisticated enough to contemplate their nature of existence.

Besides, many people won't get that far to contemplate the nature of life due to the many worries of living in the world.

Ok, this one is easy. You´re interested in mmorpg´s, therefor you dream up a world in which you can fulfill your fantasy of being in one.

Now this of course is a subconscious process, you might actually believe in what you say on a conscious level.

The sad truth is, no we do not live in the matrix.

And even if we were, how could that possibly matter? If we can be born, live and die in this system without ever knowing that we are in it, then what would be the point?

There is none.

Sorry, but this is too far from reality to be taken completely serious.

you say there is no evidence to prove that it exists. Maybe we dont have the technology to detect it.What if the evidence is so uniform with the very fabric of our cosmos, that we might not even have powerful enough energy sources to detect?. Sometimes what we perceive as the impossible is so possible.
